Children with special education needs and/or disabilities are particularly vulnerable to bullying in school.
Drawing on the experiences of young people, parents, carers and practitioners and combining them with the latest research findings, this book explores just how much work there is to be done in schools right now. It also reveals how solutions are closer than we may think, providing guidance and case studies which outline how schools and parents can tackle the problem.
This book has a powerful message which sets the agenda schools, and for future research in the field of bullying and difference. It is a must read for everyone involved in education.
This is the first comprehensive examination of the vulnerability of children with special educational needs and/disabilities to abuse from fellow pupils at school. The expert contributors to this much needed book not only thoroughly examine the existing body of relevant research, but also show how the risk to the physical and mental health of such children can be reduced by well-considered educational policies and school practices. Perspectives on Bullying and Difference is a timely and important book.
